Chicago Bears sign Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: Grade, reaction and more

16 March 2019

On the day the Packers officially signed former Bears safety Adrian Amos, the Bears have agreed to a one-year deal with former Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Clinton-Dix and Jackson will be teammates again in Chicago, where Jackson earned first-team All-Pro recognition at safety during the 2018 season.

Despite the popular opinion that Clinton-Dix's play deteriorated after the trade to the Redskins past year, his Pro Football Focus grade of 79.3 was actually the best of his career, and 17th-best among safeties in the NFL.
